Cute Little Snow Blower!!

I thought I would enter the Saturated Canary Challenge which is 'Colour Inspiration' (see below). I bought this mega cute SC image last November and didn't have time to use it... so I thought I'd make a Christmas Card for next year...

Saturated Canary Colour Inspiration!
You have to use at least three of the above I have gone for the green, pink and grey...  hope they match okay!

The pink paper is from Cosmo Cricket - 'Mitten Weather' and the Green Paper is from First Edition - 'Christmas Village'. The gorgeous Snowflake is from My Crafty Heart and is Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Create a Flake 4. The Silver Nail Heads are from JosyRose. Sentiment comes with the image!

Lots of 'Star Dust' Stickles for the snow and I've also given her sparkly tights!! 

I would like to enter the Challenges:-

Christmas Stampin' - 'Anything Goes' ends 7th February 2013
Allsorts - 'Let's Get Cute' ends 8th February 2013
All That Stickles - 'Anything Goes' ends 8th February 2013
Craft your Passion - 'Pastels' ends 10th February 2013
Saturated Canary - 'Colour Inspiration' ends 13th February 2013
Sparkle Challenge - 'Anything Goes' - February

Ah can't believe it is time for tea!! I wanted to do commenting today but have spent the whole day trying to get a decent photo of this card... and I'm still not happy with these photos!!! but this is as good as it gets.... I even got the lightbox out and they were still rubbish... not sure why... maybe because the colours are pastels and natural light is better for them? Who knows.... I'm no Annie Liebovitz that's for sure!!! LOL
I will catch up with you all soon
Hope you are all well....
Love and Hugs

Your photo looks just fine to me Sue, the colours are DEVINE and that sure is a cute image!! Think I'm gonna have to jump on this 'make a Christmas card' thing, I didn't have anywhere near enough cards last year, in fact I didn't send more than a dozen as I was away on my jollies!!
Hope you're well Hunny
Hugs Laurie xx

This is lovely Sue, such a sweet image and sentiment. Love the papers and your colouring is fab.

I've just been trying to get decent photographs of a card that I am posting tomorrow and just can't get the colours to show properly - they look OK on the camera but as soon as I upload them they change - I've given up now - everyone will have to take my word for it that they are the right colours for the challenge!
I hope you are well, take care.
